One Day At A Time!
This holds true for so many things! I first heard it at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting. Then I heard it in a song. It has become my mantra.
When my mother died 6 years ago, I started assisting my dad. Words are very important - assisting gives him more independence than if I say I help him.
The first year he was hospitalized 7 times for various operations. I started telling him that we will take things One thing at a time, One day at a time. We still do it.
I believe his knowing that I am concerned gives him the courage and desire to try to get better. This morning he resumed his leg exercises!
One day at a time. If you learn nothing else from SparkPeople, take it One day at a time. When today is over, quit worrying about what you ate and how you did. Just be thankful that tomorrow we are able to try again!
